Thursday Tunes

Thursday Tunes is a weekly event hosted by S. Krishna, devoted to sharing the music we love.

S. Krishna usually features a new artist each week - just to be different, I'm going to focus on a specific song, because it's the song that hooks me. There are very few artists whose entire body of work is in my MP3 player, but I have thousands of songs I love.

Last week I read Somewhere in Time by Richard Matheson, and this week I watched the movie staring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. Probably the best thing about the movie was it's beautiful score, featuring one of my favorite pieces of classical music, Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Opus 43, Variation 18.

Do you wonder sometimes if a producer starts with a great piece of music and then "invents" a movie to go around it?
